It's really difficult to search for used rims because all the dam ricers like those stupid high offset rims like these:
Does anyone have any suggestions for keyword that i can search for on craigslist?

Check with National Parts Depo, they specialize in aftermarket rims, and all the body parts for Firebirds in paticular. Your going to have a absolutely terrible time looking on craigslist or ebay for used off brand rims that may or may not fit your car.

I'd go with the new 17'' honey comb firebird rims with deep dish out back. The only other rims that I would go with that are 17'' or bigger are torque thrust rims(My favorite Rims)... again with deep dish in the back. I have some on my mustang. As a matter of fact, almost all the popular classic rims, and stock designs are now available in sizes 17'' and bigger.

Much better looking than the post above. Maybe plan to have them powdercoated black for an all-black look?? Or gold for the Smoky and the Bandit theme maybe??

EDIT: Ah, I see you already have the black idea in post #110 Gold isn't bad either.

EDIT Again: Too bad they got sold, they have a snowflake vibe to them. Maybe search out the 3rd/4th Gen forums for more of them??

Thanks pugsy, those silver ones don't look bad at all. You think you could do the same with the black ones for me?, i'd really appreciate it. I know the black and red ones look like they're for a nissan or something but i thought they'd go well with the old/new theme that martinsr suggested.

I don't like the black and red.

They scream "RICE" to me.
